Demi fine jewelry refers to ornaments crafted with precious metals, such as vermeil gold and sterling silver.

Moreover, this type of jewelry can achieve good quality and command attractive prices by featuring a thick layer of 18k gold vermeil and a strong core of sterling silver.
Techniques such as pure gold plating over fine silver and rhodium plating over precious metals protect against scratches and tarnishing, increasing the product's durability and contributing to the demand. The global demi fine jewelry market share will likely increase significantly throughout the forecast period, given the rising consumer disposable incomes and the growing product popularity as an affordable substitute to fine jewelry. Comparatively low price range triggers demi fine jewelry sales, notably across Asian markets.
Supply Chain Disruptions Caused by COVID-19 Pandemic Impeded the Market Growth
The COVID-19 pandemic impacted the growth of various industries globally in 2020. The COVID-19 crisis resulted in manufacturing disruptions and supply chain bottlenecks that negatively influenced the global demi-fine jewelry market trends in 2020. The pandemic resulted in delays in manufacturing demi-fine jewelry globally, thus severely impacting the market growth. The pandemic negatively impacted the import and export of demi fine jewelry, lowering manufacturers' profitability in 2020.
COVID-19 hampered the demand for demi-precious metals during the pandemic in 2020, owing to consumers losing income, postponed weddings & engagements, and canceled events & parties during the 2020 lockdown. Countries globally adhering to strict social distancing and lockdown protocols led to a dramatic shift of migrant workers from urban to rural areas leading to a shortage of workers. In addition, the outbreak led to lower rates of imports and exports of raw materials from one country to another, resulting in higher costs and material shortages.
Rising Popularity of Gender-Fluid Jewelry to Fuel Market Growth
Gender fluidity is among the latest and critical trends in the jewelry and fashion industry. Consumers typically buy jewelry as gifts for special occasions and to show their individuality. In this respect, their attitudes toward gender rapidly evolve to include inclusivity and acceptance. They positively influence product sales and encourage industry players to create gender-fluid/genderless designs in demi fine ornaments.
Gender-fluid jewelry is gaining widespread popularity, with internationally renowned celebrities such as Harry Styles, Pete Davidson, and Ranveer Singh typically wearing and promoting genderless fashion. According to Taylor & Hart, a London, U.K.-based jewelry maker, there was a 228% increase in online searches for gender-neutral jewelry between 2020 and 2021, highlighting the increasing adoption of gender-fluid products. Therefore, increasing consumer demand for gender-neutral products will drive demi fine jewelry market growth in the forthcoming years.
